Laurelling Gown - Jaquelinne Edition!

I am so relieved! The fabric for Jaquelinne's dress arrived today, and it is SO gorgeous!!! Hollyness, when do you think you'll get the spangles? The plan is to do pearl and crystal florets in the centers and spangles on the lace edge and perhaps the crosses - Jaquelinne, is this OK?

I need to purchase another set of 22" stretcher bars for my embroidery frame, and find some awesome cord/ribbon for lacing. I think that's pretty much all that is left to buy. w00t!
